Bonnie and Clyde

Almost two years ago, when Vivian joined our family, it was an adjustment for everyone. The biggest adjustment though was for Vivian and Gideon. Vivian for obvious reasons. Her whole world had changed in an instant. She didn't know what it was to be in a family. Gideon was really too young to prepare at 18 months old. He didn't understand, and he wasn't impressed with this new kid in the house. There was a lot of jealousy and some hitting and biting. Slowly though, we all made room. And Vivian and Gideon found a new normal, and realized that there was room for both of them. That we loved them both dearly. And after a few months, they were friends.

Now, they are best buddies.Yesterday, Vivian, Hamilton, and I were gone all day for her transfusion.  When we walked in the door last night, they hugged and Gideon told her, he missed her! So sweet. Oh what a difference time makes.
They are always together these days, usually cooking up some sort of mischief, lol. Hence the title Bonnie and Clyde. I think it fits them well.

Feeling especially blessed today :)

"Are you really going to wear that bucket as a hat, Didi(little brother)?" 
Notice she has all her accessories, lol.

 How sweet are they?
 Helping pick out Grandma's new glasses. These look pretty nice!
